I want to give a HUGE shout out to the first responders and the tow truck drivers on the Queen E II today (December 23).
I left Edmonton at about noon and arrived in Calgary at about 5:40pm due to the bumper to bumper traffic and white-out weather conditions. There were several collisions and even more people in the ditch. I saw no fewer than 10 tow trucks running into waist-deep snow to hook cars up to the winch to pull them out of the ditch.
There were Sheriff vehicles and fire engines (and sadly a couple of ambulances) out in terrible conditions that were not fit for animal nor human. All to help us all get to our loved ones safely. These people are true heroes. Thank you.
